Thanks Sarah. When I first began with PN, I'm not sure if we didn't have a slot for the scientific name or if I just added it to the title, as I did with this spotting. I thought I'd gone back and corrected all of my spottings, but maybe I missed this one or perhaps I didn't get around to all of them. At any rate, thanks for catching this one; appreciate it.
